I wrote it to get some use out of my English degree and also to honor my father's memory. He was raised in the Whaling City and loved working there and devoted his free time to volunteer work, although he never mentioned seeing any vampires.
The story takes place in the mid 19th century when the whaling industry was still strong, but the industrial age was moving into town full force. Amy doesn't know her handsome lover is a vampire until he appears on the balcony outside her bedroom, turns her into a vampire so they can be together and swoops her away into the night never to see her family again.
When he suddenly and mysterious disappears Amy is devastated and in her desperate loneliness turns two other young women into vampires as companions. She then struggles to show them the advantages of the vampire life without being discovered and destroyed and solidly maintains her belief that her lover will return to her.
